Calling all transcribers!
The Digital Art History team at the Getty Research Institute needs your help! Their newest project, Mutual Muses, aims to crowdsource transcriptions of art critic Lawrence Alloway and artist Sylvia Sleigh’s intense romantic and intellectual correspondence. As lovers and confidants, the couple wrote letters to each other for over six decades, and this project currently focuses on their musings from 1948–1953.
To start, take a quick tour of the transcription project on Zooniverse and join over 500 participants already transcribing. Each letter has its own transcription page.
